Libya construction exhibition we participated in December was held for the 2nd time and despite being a new exhibition the interest was more than expected. 13 companies from Turkey attended the exhibition, which is the highest number among foreign exhibitors. Other exhibitors were from China, Italy, Qatar, Spain, Tunisia, U.A.E, Germany, Syria and Singapore.
During the exhibition other than having the opportunity to meet with the officials of the companies which we have an ongoing business with, we also had meetings with potential customers. The best news at the end of 2009 was that Libya and Turkey abolished visas reciprocally as a result of growing trade volume, especially in the construction and building sector. Our activities in Libyan market will proceed in 2010 within the body of Hekim Holding.
